Meghan McCain is a very sexy woman. And when she worked as an intern at the Newsweek offices (where I also worked for the Washington Post company), she often dressed like one. A little too sexy for some, but at least the girl had a great sense of style.
Meghan dressed a little more conservatively when daddy John was running for President in 2008, and she was making public appearances on his behalf. It didn't suit her personality.
A year after the election, however, her big sexy "style" was back, and raised more than a few eyebrows (and probably some other body parts) when she posted the photo shown here on Twitter (she's holding a copy of Andy Warhol's biography).
Meghan defended the photo and then apologized for it in subsequent tweets.
“So I took a fun picture not thinking anything about what I was wearing but apparently anything other than a pantsuit I am a slut,” she wrote, followed by “what once was fun now just seems like a vessel for harassment” and “when I am alone in my apartment, I wear tank tops and sweat pants, I had no idea this makes me a ’slut’, I can’t even tell you how hurt I am.”
“I do want to apologize to anyone that was offended by my twitpic, I have clearly made a huge mistake and am sorry 2 those that are offended.”
Meghan did have an outpouring of support for the photo, but a girl who might be "going places" has to be "politically correct," and politically correct people don't show cleavage (just ask Hillary Clinton).
So it comes as no surprise that the photo for the cover of Meghan's book Dirty Sexy Politics looks like this:
Not so sexy. Or dirty. Unless you count the elephant.
Meghan is a Senator's daughter, a writer for The Daily Beast, and she's one of "the Republican party's most outspoken young members," according to her bio on Hyperion books. Apparently she's got an image to uphold.
How important is it that she covers up to do it?
